    Hello. I will go by "Bugsy" on this forum. I bought two used motorized bikes with RAW kits on them. The engines are great, but the bikes are kinda rough. I am thinking about replacing them. I have done enough reading to come to these conclusions about ideal bikes, but please tell me if I'm wrong.
    1. Single speed cruiser bikes work best for this application. (street use)
    2. If you want multi-speed, buy a multispeed internal hub and install it yourself, as nobody seems to make them already installed.
    3. Coaster brake hub rear and disc front brake works out well on these MBs. There just isn't enough hands to operate front and rear rim type brakes, plus the clutch, etc.
    4. The thuds in the road (for me) seem to be the limiting factor for speed, but nobody makes a suspension bike that an "in frame" motor will fit. Or do they?

    Thanks for the reply, Ron in Calera,
    Where did you get the double brake lever? That sounds like a good solution.
